    I kind of want to do something loosely based off the old Revolution America idea. Everyone would be a Governor of a State of their choice and they could pick between 1: Democratic 2: Republican 3: Socialist Party 4: Nationalist Party and the background is the south is ready to secede again and start a second civil war so each state will have three options to choose from 1: Stay loyal to the Union 2: Stay Neutral or try to Leave Peacefully (There will be laws put in place to make it hard to leave without a lot of burden of debt) 3: Join the Resistance. Each person will start out as a Governor of the State they choose and this will be a full on "Second Political Sim" like Capitol Hill but different and I will be hiring people to help me build the idea and the forums up but I do want this to remain hosted on TedderVision. Please reply if interested in playing a game similar to this so I can gauge interest.

    Well, you won't die without Web access. They have these things made out of cardboard with sheets of paper in them on the big long metal things off to the side at the public library where the computer kiosks and wi-fi café are. They're called "books" and that's how people broadened themselves before there was an Internet. A first class airline ticket costs more than a Business class or Coach ticket. Should the government force airlines to charge the same for all seats?

    I'd like to run a small divided U.S. game where each person can choose a color and come up with a new government and play as the president and legislature (if appropriate) , they are also responsible with naming their new nation and more. i will play the light blue which will represent what is left standing of the old United States. We'd need a sign up subforum, a announcements subforum and one for each colored region which we would request later after applications have been approved.

    I use the term anti-abortion instead of "pro life" in order to specifically focus on the issue of abortion and avoid linguistic semantics. I believe that life starts at conception as defined both by science and metaphysics. As such I believe that no human being can be denied the basic right to life that is guaranteed under the U.S constitution and basic natural rights.

    The Hon. Paul Irving, Sergeant at Arms: Please come with me sirs. (OOC: @Bluto, @Jonathan, and @Russ, you have been suspended from the House for the next 24 hours. Please do not do anything in the House, whether it be voting, using the hopper, or debating. I will ask that all other representatives disregard their posts and report any posts by those three in the next 24 hours. Anyone with mods who sees a post from one of you in the House forum should hide or delete the post.)

    Mr. Speaker, The proposed amendment would more than double the refugee ceiling which was set at 110,000 for fiscal year 2017 and sets it at a number nearly triple the number of actual admissions which was 84,995. Setting the refugee ceiling at 50,000 is far more in keeping with the wishes of the American people, whom do want to help refugees but believe that the total number entering the country needs to be brought down. I yield.

    FIGHT OVER SEXUAL ASSAULT LEGISLATION Who Copied Whom? Capital Hill is a buzz after Congressman Louis Hong @Jonathan(D-LA) accused Congressman Sullivan Rapperbee @Batman(R-RI) of plagiarism after Congressman Rapperbee submitted a similar (but nowhere close to identical) bill regarding the victims of sexual assault. Others including Congressman Congressman Shultz @Russ(D-TX), and Congressman Solin @Doomhammer(D-OH) criticized rapperbee while falling short of an accusation of plagiarism. Even Congressman Ward @Jsawrie himself was critical of submitting similar legislation while ignoring his own. Decision of the Judges While it was a slightly political and partisan move to ignore a minority party's legislation and simply make a similar bill to be pushed forward while taking the credit, it is dishonest and bearing on outright falsehood to accuse Rep Rapperbee of plagiarism. After looking at both bills side by side, you can see that they are unique and different in many ways that make it fairly dishonest to say that Rep Rapperbee simply copied and pasted Rep Ward's legislation. Such an accusation is wildly exaggerating the facts as both Congressmen Hong, Solin and Ward stated. The Hill gives this accusation by Rep Hong 3 Pinocchio's. The Hill gives the copy and paste accusation of Rep Ward and Solin 3 Pinocchio's.

    Well, I don't really hold with resolutions as such, but I will offer a few comments about the year closing and the upcoming one. -It was a year of endings. I'm sure everybody noticed this Parker isn't a Veteran. 2017 was the last complete year I will wear the Nation's cloth; I have reached mandatory retirement. And it was the first complete year we were without "Richard Candler." VUSA vets will remember he was a memorial to a very close RL friend of mine that passed on in 2016. Sim-wise, this Parker only shares a name with Parker 1.0-5.0. I retired from simming as I got tired of fighting with the Cool Kids and being a Party of One. Thinking I'll see how far I can go playing within the rules instead of just ignoring them when I think they're stupid.

    Actually, the national polls at the Presidential election were pretty good. The issue was in the way the media presented what a small popular vote lead actually means in an election that isn't decided by popular vote. On the subject of what we over here call the "Shy Tory Factor", it is sometimes the case that online and automated polls show a different result to in-person polls, although the size of that issue is disputed, and those types of polls are not necessarily more accurate due to other factors such as low response rate. I'm a maths and stats guy, so I'm a bit nerdy about this sort of stuff!

    I want to formally apologize to @Kyle Fitzgerald and @Shiggy for the way I behaved last round. I don't apologize for making a third party because I think it was fun (at least for those involved) but I do want to apologize for the way I left the party and for any hard feelings. To answer any questions, no I still don't intend to play next round but that has nothing to do with the player base and everything to do with how Tedder is choosing to run this game and we've had discussions about this. When the time comes Tedder is ready to fully commit to running this site as a Gov Sim and he hires a team of dedicated Admins I would be happy to either be one of the Admins or a player. Either way my involvement going forward is entirely based on whether or not Tedder chooses to take his Govsim seriously.

    Made this last weekend. Rum icecream 2 cups heavy cream 1 cup whole milk 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar, divided 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg 2 large eggs 1/3 cup dark rum Equipment: an ice cream maker PREPARATION Bring cream, milk, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and nutmeg to a simmer in a heavy medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring. Meanwhile, whisk together eggs, remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add cream mixture in a slow stream, whisking. Return to saucepan and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until mixture coats back of spoon and registers 175°F on an instant-read thermometer (do not boil). Immediately strain custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a metal bowl. Stir in rum and chill custard at least 6 hours. Freeze in ice cream maker, then transfer to an airtight container and put in freezer to harden, about 2 hours.
